More Deja Vu

Kate O’Beirne agrees with me.

Anyone who doesn’t appreciate how the Berger bunch has used the fortuitous timing to their advantage must have slept through the Clinton years. The defense is classic. First, the mean Republicans, then the meaningless personal testimonials–“if you knew Sandy Berger like I know Sandy Berger (or Betty Currie). . .,” then the irrelevant–he is an extremely hardworking guy who was only trying to help the Commission (we’re working, working, working here at the White House), and finally (the political use of FBI files, the lost billing records) the removal of the classified documents was “inadvertent.”

She Doesn’t Like Singing For Muslims

That’s what Linda Ronstadt said.

Oh, what’s that? She said it about Christians?

My mistake. No wonder the politically correct harpies aren’t trumpeting it from the front pages.

You know, it’s really sad that so many artists that I enjoy have to indulge themselves in this mindless politics. I used to love her stuff, particularly the torch songs with Nelson Riddle, but she’ll never sound the same again.

Cutting The Anchor Chain

Cavuto is reporting that Berger has resigned from the Kerry campaign as an “informal advisor” (I wonder what such a “resignation” means?).

I wonder if it isn’t too late, though? It depends on why he purloined those documents. If they were used to generate Kerry speeches and talking points, and Kerry knew about it, this could be his own Watergate.

Trousergate?

You gotta love the comment at this post about this story.

I think it’s refreshing that a Clinton Administration official is in trouble for what he put INTO his pants.

[Update on Tuesday morning]

Reportedly, he also “inadvertently” stuffed documents into his socks.

I’m really having deja vu here–it’s bringing back memories of all the Clintonian shenanigans and evidence tampering in the nineties. It’s also a stark reminder of how unserious the Clinton administration was about national security. After all, it had a commander in chief who engaged in behavior that would have exposed him to blackmail.

Gerard Vanderleun can sympathize with Sandy. Well, sort of.

Consensus

If this on-line poll is to be believed, Arnold is right–California legislators really are girlie men. So far, the polling is running a hundred percent in favor of the proposition.

I think that the reaction of the Dems to this is hysterical, in both senses of the word.

[Update at 5:30 PM]

The legislators have gained some support. Now over one percent of the respondents don’t think they’re girlie men.
